6 lamb shanks
3/4 cup seasoned flour
Vegetable oil as needed
3/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 1/4 cups diced onion
2 1/4 cups diced carrot
3 teaspoons garlic, minced

6 whole bay leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Dredge the lamb shanks in seasoned flour, heat oil in an oven proof casserole dish and sear meat on all sides. Remove, coat with mustard and set aside.
